Don is a literal psychopath. Do not go if you are a minority. He is a racist man who will completely ruin your confidence while driving if you are a person of color. If you want your child to have confidence, Don is the worst candidate to choose. In regards to his racist nature, he is a psychotic man. I have never met someone so psychotic and cunning as Don. I hate this school, and now my child is suffering because of it.

Don taught my son - and now my daughter - how to drive. He is patient, supportive, professional - everything you could possibly want in a driving instructor. But, Don is more than a driving instructor. He is more of a driving mentor. He understands the need to gain the confidence of your child, so they can master the skills needed to drive safely. He turned my rather anxious daughter into a more confident driver and, for that, my wife and I are eternally grateful. Don is truly an outstanding driving instructor - and - an even better person. I recommend Don and Open Road to anyone who asks about driving schools. Don, thanks again for everything!

My son just completed his driving lessons with Open Road and had a really great experience. His instructor Sal made him feel confident and prepared to drive for the first time. My son loved it. The academy also does all the paper work and annoying DMV interactions for you, which with my busy schedule was crucial. Finally they drop off and pick up all paper work at your residence so the whole process was effortless. Thank you guys. I highly recommend Open Road Driving Academy.

I went to Don for a few refresher-lessons before my road test, and I never felt more at ease while driving with him. He's literally the coolest guy you will ever meet, and he taught me more in one hour than I EVER learned from Evelyn at Alpine. I aced my road test and I owe it all to Don!!!!

I would Highly Recommend Open Road Driving academy. Don, the instructor was extremely patient and well versed with training new drivers. The reason I am comfortable behind the wheel today is DON. He was very professional and at the same time very accommodating with the timings.If you are a first time driver either excited or scared to drive, Open Road Driving Academy is the best choice. Don knows how to tailor the teaching technique according to your personality. Thanks Don for everything you taught me. I promise to be a Safe Driver on the Road 🙂

From first contact, to my stepdaughter's last lesson, Don Willmot and Open Road Driving Academy were professional, punctual and perfect at what they do. My stepdaughter was terrified of driving. She wanted to drive but was extremely tense when Don came to pick her up. By the end of the 6th hour, she was well underway and enjoying the process of learning to drive rather than dreading it. Don's vast experience with beginners and insights into what she was going through, worked in tandem with his creative strategies for helping my stepdaughter conquer fears and begin the process of learning to drive. Don is patient and super reliable. His warm personality puts the student driver at ease early on...First rate! This review should serve as the strongest possible recommendation for Open Road. You will not be disappointed!

Hiring Open Road is a 'NO BRAINER!' We called Don on my son's 16 birthday, 1 week later he had his permit in hand and was driving us every where. One year later we called Don again and he ran my son thru a refresher and took him for his road test. He passed the test with no problem. Thank you Open Road!!! My son said, "Mom there is no way I would have passed that test without Don" We've recommended Open Road numerous times and will continue to do so. Plus, we will be hiring him for our next 2 children.

On a scale of 1-10, I give Open Road Diving Academy a 15!!! Since enrolling my son to his last day of driving, we had the BEST service from Don. Don is a very personable guy and my son was very comfortable driving with him. I will definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a driving school. Thanks again Don!!!
